SYDNEY, Australia (WATE) – After being arrested, a teen asked a news station in Australia to use a different photo than her mugshot.

Amy Sharp, 18, was arrested last week for property offences. Investigators say she later escaped while in custody.

After 7 News in Sydney posted information on Sharp on its Facebook page, the suspect commented from her personal account. She asked the station to use a photo that she believed was more flattering. Her comment received more than 64,000 likes.

According to Surry Hills Police, she was considered a low risk to the public. She was arrested a day after her escape.
